Ethically made

We follow the World Fair Trade Organisation's guidelines to ensure our practices are fair and improve the lives of those who work with us.

The strip with the Andean motifs has been handmade by women in a rural community in the Peruvian Andes. We pay them a fair wage and help the ones that want to set up their own local businesses. We also dedicate part of the profits to undertake development projects chosen by the women in the communities.

The dress was tailored in a small family-run factory in Lima. We only work with small factories that respect workers' rights and treat them with the love and respect they deserve.

The handmade motifs

Each motif tells a story. This motif is called hearts. It's a special and very time-consuming motif that only the most experienced weavers know how to make. It's a special motif used in weddings. It's woven into the wedding clothes of the bride and groom and represents love.

Please note that each woman may weave the motifs slightly differently so the ones in your clothes might not look exactly the same as the ones in the picture. This makes every piece unique and special. 


This dress is made of 100% viscose for a super soft feel. The fabric is flexible for a comfortable fit that adapts to the higher part of your body.

The motifs have been made using a blend of alpaca and sheep wool, so they are soft to the touch.

Taking part in the journey

This is the third outfit from Handmadestories that I have purchased. As always, it fits me to a tea. I enjoy wearing the clothes not only for its style but the story of every item. Knowing that I am part of the journey of the company that focuses on sustainability and assisting a community in Peru in the craft of every item, I am able to take part in the synergy and in the story.

Great dress

Love the detail and the fabric, flattering shape. I am UK size 12 (ish) and ordered the large size and it fits well, slightly loose which is what I wanted. Arrived fast and well packaged too.
